    The point-slope form of a line is explained by going through an example problem and converting it to slope-intercept form. Then, this equation is graphed.

    Mr. Rutter is funny, but also teaches the material well. I'm an 11th grade Advanced Algebra student and I am taking e2020 classes, but I like his teaching better. It feels more like you're in a class, and it's real, like him writing on the board rather than all computerized. Thanks.
